Focuses on challenges of leadership and management that require special attention in nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations. The course provides students with the conceptual and analytic base needed to build and direct a new or established organization, finding a balance between strategic discipline and flexibility. The course exposes students to several analytic tools and processes (e.g., strategic triangle and strategy maps, positioning and strategic marketing, performance measurement, and theory of change, and partenrships and alliances), but the focus throughout is on strategy and leadership. Students should be familiar with basic management concepts, either through an earlier course or professional experience. The course is taught primarily through case studies covering a wide range of organizations. Students undertake a major "benchmarking" project for a real client organization, presenting the results both in class and in a final paper.
